    Was it the right decision to add women's boxing to the 2012 Olympics? What do you think?

    Three weight classes. (Approx 105-112 lbs, 123- 132 lbs, 151- 165 lbs)

    Boxing was the only Olympic sport without women's competition. Whether it was right or not, the IOC wants both genders participating in all of its sports.

    Sure. I don't think baseball/softball should have been dropped, though.

    Golf and tennis are two sports that don't need to be in the Olympics.

    Rugby sevens is a good addition.

    A few years back, I worked a part-time job in the West End of London, one that usually saw me getting out around eleven on weekend nights. If the rules of boxing are relaxed to allow hair-pulling and eye-gouging (along with getting smashed out of your head on cheap booze beforehand), I'd say that the UK is a shoo-in for the gold.
